Five for Friday!!! June 27

As I type this, I notice the date..... JUNE 27!!!!
Oh my goodness!  The summer is flying by AND must  S--L--O--W down.  
Does anyone else feel that way?

Okay... I need to quit fretting and get back to my post.

It's another FIVE FOR FRIDAY sweet friends!  I'm linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching.

Here's my 5!!

1. Classroom Colors/Design Change

I am in need of a new updo in my classroom.  I have had the same color pattern and design for a couple of years now and want something NEW.    I found just the colors and patterns that I want to use that will change things a bit, but yet I can still use a lot of what I already have.  Bonus!!  I found these two photos on Pinterest, but when I try to click on them to find the link, there is nothing.  If these are one of your classroom photos, please let me know. I will add the link onto this page.   I LOVE the turquoise blue chevron with the black and white polka dots.  I already have LOTS of polka dots, but wanted something different.  This chevron will be perfect.   Now to find those gorgeous chevron bulletin board borders.....

2.    Word Raider Ipad App
I've been working on items to add to my vocabulary stations  with my 3rd graders.  I found this fun app to add to our station activities on Fridays.  It's FREE!!  Students can select either the easy, medium, or hard level.  Take a peek at the game in the photos below.

3.  94 Seconds I pad App

94 seconds is another great Ipad app that I'm going to add to my vocabulary stations.  It's also a FREE app.  94 seconds has several different categories for students to choose from.  Once a category is chosen, students will be given a letter.  Students have 94 seconds to list as many words as possible that start with this letter and belong in that particular category.  Here's a sneak peek of the game in action:

4.   Summer Fun!
I LOVE all my family time in the summer, BUT this week has been C-R-A-Z-Y between baseball games, baseball camps, and gymnastic practices.    Here's a peek at my family summer fun this past week:

5.  Mail Call
If you've stopped by my blog lately, you know that I am hooked on Jamberry.  I've even taken the plunge to be a Jamberry Independent Consultant.  I am LOVIN' getting the mail these days.  I'm anxiously awaiting the arrival of all my FREE STUFF I earned for launching my first party. Woot! Woot!  

Enjoy your weekend!

The 94 Seconds app looks cool! I'll definitely have to check it out with my first graders next year!

I feel like summer is FLYING by, too, and we JUST got out of school today! There are just too many things I want to do. Enjoy every minute with your precious children!
